Will it matter if i don't flush all the liquid from rads, like if there is still some left will it matter?

I got 3 rads in my 900D and im sure if i were to flush it some liquid will still be left somewhere inside

Is the hardware new? Flush with lemon juice water, 1:4 ratio, then with a bicarb. 1tb baking soda to 1 liter hot distilled water.

The reason for this is many rads still have flux in them, and flux will mess with coolant.

If the hardware isn't new, and hasn't had ANY additives other than water, so no copper sulphate, benzyl chloride, or anything like that, then drain, mix your pastel, then fill. It's not a good idea to just eyeball mix pastel. It's not like X1 where if you mess up the ratio you just get slightly lower performance, or less corrosion protection, if you get bad mix ratios pastel will fall out of suspension quicker.

Yeah the whole system and loop is new.. I have flushed the rads individually. So I am guessing I have no real need to flush anymore do I? Just put 250ml of pastel in 1ltr and fill?

I'd still flush with a bicarb. Basically that will keep your loop from having anything in it that might mess with Pastels pH. Pastel isn't super sensitive to pH but it's better to be safe than sorry. An imbalanced pH can cause the pastel to turn brownish. Again, pastel is not super sensitive to pH. Unless I'm mistaken you mix 250ml of pastel to 750ml of distilled water to make 1 liter of coolant. Don't dilute it, it may make it fall out of suspension.

Cold Cathode Florescent Lights, also called CCFLs, cold cathodes, or cathodes. People advise against LEDs for UV effects, because only 8% of the light generated from UV LEDs is actually UV light, the rest is within the visible light spectrum. You can find them at any computer enthusiast stores or online websites. If you have an old halloween blacklight laying around I would recommend hardmodding that into your chassis if you're up for a challenge, they produce MUCH more light than the tiny CCFLs used in computers.

I just got one of those 5m strips too but in the 590nm spectrum for my upcoming build that's in the case mod build log section. Great thing about them is you can just wire it to a molex connector and plug it into your power supply. Just too easy. Going to use the extra for matching accent lighting under my desk.

UV LEDs tend to wash out the entire case in a purplish light. Here is an example of my non water cooled loop with UV LEDs vs UV Cold Cathodes. CCFLs tend to give off a more ambient lighting effect versus the washed out look you get from LEDs when new.
